Kim Jong Kook known as Commander in Running Man is intimidating to both the guests and the viewers. He often used his strong muscular body to overrule the other hosts and guests. However, he had successfully created an image that evolve the emotions of the viewers which helped him gain popularity.
Contradictory to his image onscreen, Kim Jong Kook is friendly and approachable to the media. He even took the initiative to approach the reporters for a handshake. Without the translator telling him, he adjusted the label on his tuxedo. It is difficult to find any fault in this man who appears to be so cool and pure.
